  An Englishman: Good Evening: Used to kill the Saemisch with 4.a3,Bxc3; 5.bxc3,c5. Deferring a3 until after ...d5 makes a lot of sense as it transposes into one of the weaker replies. The game becomes an excellent example of what happens when Black fails to hold back the White center; cute finish, too.

Jan-24-19  Damenlaeuferbauer: It is so sad to see! What happened to that marvellous player, who "played such interesting chess in the 1990's" (his former second Konstantin Sakaev) and outprepared and -played the giant Garry K. Kasparov in their 2000 title match to become the 14th world champion in the history of the royal game. He was the best positional player, defender and endgame player and had the best opening repertoire of his generation. Is this the end of a great and impressive career?
